Word up! Z is for Zinnia

Yellow ZINNIA 1
Zinnias are grown for their colourful, long-lasting flower-heads and are easy to grow. However, since plants originate from south-west US and Mexico, they tend to benefit from hot, dry summers.

  1. Prior to this year, I was never really a flower fan. Vegetable gardening was my gig. But this year my wife and I grew some flowers from seed. Zinnias figured prominently. They were part of making my newly-revamped backyard beautiful. I’ve been won over.

    1. They’re stunning aren’t they! Where have they been all my life??!!! I’m hoping to collect seed and grow them again next year…

      1. If you have any seeds left over Bridget then I would want some! I think they will look fab in my new back garden.
